Crowfall retires pledge packages in favor of pre-orders, partners with AbleGamers

Before we get to talking about ways Crowfall is trying to make money, here is something it’s giving away for free: four brand-new Patch 5.3 wallpapers. Treat yourself today.

ArtCraft gave its community a heads-up that at the end of 2017, it will be retiring its business model of selling pledge packages in favor of smaller pre-orders. This especially affects the larger bundles of $200 or more, which the studio said will be broken down and sold in smaller increments to those who want a la carte purchases. There will also be three pre-order editions put on sale as the game ramps up toward beta and release.

“In late January, we’ll be transitioning pricing for almost everything in our store to a micro-transaction currency (known as crowns), which function in a manner… well, like pretty much every other online game,” the studio said. “All virtual items will use crown pricing while digital and physical copies of the game, VIP Tickets and a few services will continue to be priced using real-world currency. All existing wallets will be converted to crowns, at the highest currency-to-crown ratio that we offer.”

ArtCraft also mentioned on Twitter that it is teaming up with AbleGamers to help make Crowfall more accessible for those with physical handicaps.

Yeah, that’s why I never fund projects way before they are released. Not all developers are trustworthy…

I guess this game’s going to ship next year if it’s offering pre-orders, good for them PVP isn’t my thing but the game has some polish and cool themes and ideas.

I would normally be ashamed to spell out plainly I really did not understand most of what I read. Is this the norm in game development or at least crowdfunded development?

Look son, I have…these sixty bucks here. Can you sell me the game or not? #outofmylawn

It’s nice they are helping disabled gamers take part in this scam along with everyone else. Thanks for caring Artcraft. Maybe they are hoping for mentally disabled people – since those are the only people I’d think could be tricked into giving one red cent to these trashy, no-talent charlatans.
